Variety is reporting that "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is officially a major catastrophe for Disney. Tracking projections have it at a $28 million weekend in North America, that's a 77% drop from last weekend’s lackluster opening of $84.4 million.
The Miller-Lord debacle, the casting of Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo seem to have contributed to this massive disappointment.  Lucasfilm head Kathy Kennedy's job is no doubt in jeopardy if another SW film does badly, if not right now it is.
"This is not good, especially when the movie is so expensive and the overseas numbers are so poor. At best it plays like Suicide SquadX-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men Origins: Wolverine and levels out after a super-duper drop for a $210-$215m domestic total."

"If those lesser figures come to pass, Solo: A Star Wars Story will be the lowest-grossing live-action theatrical Star Wars movie ever, without even factoring inflation. In their original releases, Empire Strikes Strike earned $209 million domestic in 1980 and Return of the Jedi earned $252m in 1983. Heck, the Star Wars: Special Edition release earned $135m in 1997, which would be around $275m today.
